Gen Pasha’s legacy must end: Nisar

Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan on Tuesday said remnants and the legacy of former ISI chief Gen (r) Shuja Pasha must be eliminated from within the army.

“I have always said that we have an army chief [Gen Kayani] who has commendably stayed away from politics, but the legacy of General (r) Pasha and others like him is still alive in the military. We have to eliminate such legacies from the Pakistan Army. I am not calling for their dismissal, but they need to be informed of the right path.”

“The Pakistan Army is a dedicated force who sacrifices much for Pakistan. No one is better than Pakistan Army. Martial Law was imposed by some commanders using the army; they maligned the respect of the army and gave birth to controversies. We will remove the reservations of Mehmood Khan Achakzai.”

Nisar said the government would sit and talk in a good atmosphere with high officials of the army, as well as the lower management, to bring them on the “right track”.

“This would help remove doubts of Mehmood Khan and others,” he said.

The interior minister said instead of coordinating, security agencies in Balochistan were competing against one another and compounding the problems in the restive province.

He added that according to the Balochistan government, the Frontier Constabulary (FC) was not in their control.

“The former government has handed over FC control to the provincial government,” Nisar said.

Nisar said that he would be meeting the army chief and heads of security agencies.

A meeting scheduled for June 20 with security agencies would also take place following which a security policy would be formulated, Nisar added.

The interior minister added that two task forces would be constituted on anti-terrorism and missing persons.

    Gen Kiayani has done more damage to the army than any other army chief before him. He alone is responsible for Pakistan army becoming the laughing stock of the world. Eevry time there is a bpmb blast or something, kiayani comes out and declares that Pakistan army is ready to deal with any threats. If they have been so ready then how come they are beaten by a bunch of un organized criminals evry single day?

    Nisar as Leader of Opposition had full opportunity to ask resignation from shuja pasha when Pasha was in front of parliament after Abbotabad insulting raid, but they all acted like ostrich who forget to bring their head out of sand and enjoyed their cold bath.So praising kiyani and throwing insult to Pasha is another insulting blow to people's mandate as both are birds of feather flock together for their American interests.By the way when Abbotabad and silala raid was being recorded in our soil our chief was kiayni not pasha.
